Should you have any short term needs, or if you need a befriending service, a sitting service, support to see your GP or for a hospital appointment, then ring the Parish Nursing Support Line on 07528 701406 or by email
We also offer prayer and Spiritual support to those requiring it.
In addition we hold a number of healthy breakfasts for men during the year, when a topical health talk will be given. For ladies there is an occasional Light Lunch where once again a topical health talk is given.
Not only does Parish Nursing hold their regular Friday morning surgery, but coffee mornings are also held several times during the year.
